The Bronx Cocktail

Ingredients

1 ½ oz. Gin

¼ oz. Sweet Vermouth

¼ oz. Dry Vermouth

1 ½ oz. Orange Juice

Cubed Ice

Glassware and Tools

Coupe Glass

Jigger (1 ½ / ¾)

Boston Shaker Tin

Mixing Glass

Strainer


Instructions

1. Using the jigger, pour the following into the mixing glass:

- 1 ½ oz. gin
- ¼ oz. sweet vermouth
- ¼ oz. dry vermouth
- 1 ½ oz. orange juice

2. Fill your mixing glass with cubed ice and place your Boston Shaker tin on top. Give the end a firm tap (Don’t forget to test if it is sealed).

3. Shake for 10-15 seconds, allowing the mixture to go from one end of the shaker to the other. Shaking should be fairly vigorous.

4. Apply a firm tap to the tin at a point where the glass and tin have a small bit of separation, and using the strainer, strain contents into your coupe glass.

5. Take your citrus peeler and carefully peel an oval shaped piece of orange skin. The peel should be roughly an inch and contain no meat and as little pith as possible.

6. While holding the peel skin side to the drink in one hand, light the lighter with the other and squeeze the peel towards the drink over the flame. Coat the top of the cocktail with the citrus mist in two squeezes. Then rub the the skin of the peel around the rim of the glass and drop it into your drink for added flavor.

7. Enjoy!
